I'm sorry. By race I meant nationality. The problem was that she was saying she wasn't jamaican because she was born in America. She isn't African-American because her family is from the Islands. Yeah, I guess they came from Africa but that doesn't make them African. We all ORIGINALLY came from one place but we are all different races. I guess I worded it incorrectly. I promise i'm not a total idiot :)
I don't get why everyone's so upset about this... More than likely it was a miscommunication or he used the wrong word... And if he really did mean it they way interpreted: he could have a mental or brain disorder... So although it seems obvious to us... 2 him its probably something he has 2 think
To answer the teenagers question: No, we have a special month called Kangaroocember, where we all celebrate Australia by finding kangaroos and riding in their pouches. ...OF COURSE it's November in Australia. Just like the rest of the world. >.<
Can't believe nobody has said this yet. They were talking about how the seasons are flipped for the two hemispheres, and with flipped seasons he might have thought the months flipped as well. There's an intelligent discussion behind it, it's just a silly but forgivable question.
Actually, the first thing that popped into my mind was that it would be November 30th in California. THEN, it technically wouldn't be November in Australia. But that's not the case here, is it? And 54, one really has to be amazed at how many people aren't aware of the seasons being different. I swear I studied that in the 4th grade when I was living in the USA, so how come they still don't know it? '-'
Fuck yeah. It's how I get to work too. Because riding a Kangaroo is absolutely physically possible. They don't stand upright or anything. I was actually asked by a girl in London if we ride the Kangaroos and have Koala's in all our trees. Seriously..... REALLY??
... I can only hope that the boy was trying to refer to the weather difference, and not the actual month, because otherwise this is just another crushing blow to my faith in humanity.
13- Because otherwise the bleak blackness of depression eats at you as you sit and contemplate all the pain and cruelty in the world, all the idiotic and foolish behavior. It's easier for me to wake up everyday and attempt to lie to myself than to admit that existence is its own special form of hell.
i want to get off this planet NOW. (probably that teenage boy is going to be polititian one day)
